Right before I moved to Minnesota this past summer, I completed a project I’m very proud of: The Bubbler Gallery. It is an informal exhibition space installed above some water fountains (locally referred to as bubblers) at the CVPA Star Store building. It is a highly trafficked area where students and the public can take in a range of video art by practicing artists from across the country. The second exhibition has just launched – if you’re in the MA/RI area, go check it out!
This is my second year heading up the CAA Conversations Podcast as a member of the CAA Education Committee. Luckily this year I was able to recruit more hosts, so you’ll hear more voices on each episode, which run 15-40 minutes each and feature discussions of art/art history/design education.
This map is a record of the speakers we’ve heard from during our first two years (not all episodes have been published for this academic year – subscribe on iTunes to be notified as each one is released!).
The exhibition also features the work of Catherine Reinhart and Olivia Valentine. This group exhibition brings together three socially engaged artists that collectively address ideas of collaboration, landscape intervention, shared mending, and education.
The exhibition is open now and runs through December 13. Gallery hours are 9 – 5 Monday – Friday. Exhibitions are free and open to the public. Please contact Karen Gergely at Gergely1@graceland.edu for more information.
This two-day event features over 130 original works available for viewing and purchase, including zines, poetry chapbooks, broadsides, artist’s books, and fine press editions. Find special gifts for those on your shopping list, or treat yourself to a unique work of art.
